    Having started and not updating my previous journal I thought it was about time to try again.

    Last journal was specifically aimed at prepping for the over 50's but fell by the wayside as I picked up niggling injury after niggling injury.

    This time there'll be no set target date. The aim is to be injury free, train my ass off as always and assess after a few months.

    I'm not ruling out a comp next year, I'll see how things pan out.

    I'm currently sitting at around 87/88kg and around 14/15% body fat. I've got upper abs.

    Training is 6 days per week as I thrive off volume. I do 25 minutes of cardio 4 to 5 mornings a week before work.

    Weights in the evening. Usually split by single body parts although I'm considering trying something different.

    My strong points are delts, back, shoulders and triceps whilst my weakest areas are calfs, biceps (stubborn buggers). My hammies and quads are OK but I'd like to improve on them.

    Lifts at the current time are:

    Squat -160kg x 7 reps
    DL - 220kg x 3 and 200kg x 6
    DB FLAT bench - 50kg x 8 for 3sets
    Decline Bench BB - 180 x 5
    Seated OHP 90kg x 5

    I trained chest this evening.

    Briefly consisted of

    Reverse grip Bench press - 6 sets working up to 110kg x 8. 2 sets were TUT
    Plate loaded bench press - incline - excellent machine that really hits the pecs. 3 heavy sets up to 75 kg each side and 2 sets of TUT
    Cable flys - 5 sets, high to low.
    Weighted dips leaning forward - 4 sets up to 40kg added, 8 reps.

    Done

    Thanks @Righty

    Up early, no training today. It was the wife's birthday last week so it's off to London for shopping and Lunch.

    Diet wise I'm not counting calories or macros at the moment. A standard day looks I've this:

    Fasted cardio followed by

    Meal 1 - whey protein, oats, banana, evoo, 2 eggs
    Meal 2 - mackerel & rice cakes 3 times a week; beef chilli & rice 4 times a week
    Meal 3 - chicken, homemade coleslaw, jacket potatoe
    Meal 4 - beef chilli & cous , 1 egg
    Meal 5 - pre workout - whey protein, banana, 2 eggs
    Workout - IBCAA, creatine, vitargo, leucine.
    Meal 6 - chicken or beef with potatoes, bowl of raspberries and blueberries with Greek yoghurt
    Pre sleep - milk protein.

    I also have 200g of spinach and 200g of kale mixed with myprotein super greens. I snack on almonds, cashews during the day.

    I don't intend to change this at the moment.

    Cheers Floydy, had a good day mate. I know a great little Thai restaurant just off Baker Street so it was Green Curry for lunch and chicken with basil and chilli LOL.
    Kinda forgot the work bit, somehow it didn't feel that important LOL
    Cheers.

    I'm going to make the effort on some of the other journals @Floydy @TheProducer @JB @Righty @LittleLiam @Ash1981

    Thanks for the support all.
